BowWowMeow Updates on your dog?

huntergreen rad10,,, in people this drug is called ultram. in people, it can affect the prostrate of older guys. no idea if it would affect a dog in this way. it can also cause excessive thirst. first be alert for the inability to pee, distended ab and will feel bloated to the touch and will be painful to the touch. my working theory would be his urinary tract is inflamed including the prostrate due to the surgery. the med may have added to this, should only become an issue if he is unable to pee. should pass.

Sunflowers I am too outraged to comment on this thread about the vet.
Give that poor boy some ear scratches for me.

He was on tramadol, but I haven't given him any today, he hasn't seemed in any pain.

huntergreen that can be caused by narcotic, are you still using pain med ?

BowWowMeow Yes, I was thinking that something was pressing on the urethra as well.

wolfy dog Make sure before the vet tries another medicine or antibiotics, just to try....there is no bleeding internally that presses on / compromises the urethra. I would take him to another vet. I am so sorry for you and your dog.
So here, neutering is not as easy as it is always portrayed to be. Please keep us posted.

Just started. And yes, I'm planning to call in the morning.

Better, I think. His scrotum is down to about half the size it was before he was neutered, and he's acting a lot perkier. But he's started this thing where when he pees he kind of starts and stops and starts again, and the stream looks a lot weaker than normal - but the color's good. I'm going to call the vet again in the morning, I'm not sure if it could be a med side effect or a uti or whether I should be worried or not...
